An Interactive Movie Trilogy

Marissa Marcel was a film star. She made three movies. But none of the movies were ever released. And Marissa Marcel disappeared. An interactive trilogy from Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story.

IMMORTALITY is Sam Barlow’s first return to the horror genre since Silent Hill: Shattered Memories in 2009. In this game, players get to explore a treasure trove of newly discovered footage from the three lost movies of Marissa Marcel. By using a magical new mechanic – the ability to ‘match cut’ from a visual at any point in a piece of footage – players navigate via cinematic language to dig up the secrets beneath the surface.

Written with Allan Scott (Don’t Look Now, Queen’s Gambit), Amelia Gray (Mr. Robot, Maniac) and Barry Gifford (Wild at Heart, Lost Highway), IMMORTALITY is a boldly ambitious attempt to deconstruct cinema whilst riffing on the mechanics of Pokémon Snap. Barlow’s goal has been to create a game as messy and personal, as wild and unconstrained as his favorite movies and books.
